Egypt: Qandeel - Economic Crisis and Lawlessness are Government's Biggest Challenges

Prime Minister Hisham Qandeel told a press conference on Thursday 02/08/2012 that he selected members of his cabinet according to their efficiency not to their political or partisan trends, adding his cabinet does not group any figures from the dissolved National Democratic Party.

Qandeel affirmed that the two biggest challenges facing his government are the economic crisis and lawlessness, promising to put an end to lack of security in cooperation with the police and army. He added that the creation of four ministries will have no financial burdens on the state's budget.
